I mentioned that i reckon that guy will probably only take that thing out to some empty fat beachie anyway, so who cares?

I presume everyone out at Bronte today was reading this thread about dropping in. There were three, four or five guys taking off on every wave and most only pulled out if they couldn't keep up with the others :shock: :shock:

^^^^

I stopped at Collaroy late this arvo to have a look. There was only one break happening which was right next to the outdoor swimming pool. It was a every man (and kid) for himself situation. Though the swell was very small with a fair few long boarders out there.

Maybe a board tricked up Mad Max style might be the go

Up to the point where what you are doing genuinely interferes with the safety and comfort of others.

Try lighting up a cigarette in a restaurant and see how far you get. People have accepted these mandated things, while at the same time seemingly becoming more self-centred and narcissistic in relation to others.

Witness every second driver on the road, no idea and no concern about the rest of the world.
